Ski Boots; Improperly Installed Bindings
Plaintiff, a novice skier, bought his first pair of skis, bindings, and boots at a local ski shop. About two years later he was caused to fall while traversing a small ski slope. His bindings did not release and as a result he sustained a serious fracture to his leg. The ski shop employee who installed the bindings set the bindings without having plaintiff stand in his boots or measuring his height and weight as recommended.
